Barclay Lake, Stone Lake, and Eagle Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is the best of hikes, this is the worst of hikes. Well, not really. But it is a tale of two trails. The first offers a relaxing walk through beautiful forest to reach Barclay Lake, and the second continues on a rough and steep climb to remote Eagle Lake, less than 2 miles farther away but much harder to reach. In between, unheralded but scenic Stone Lake rests in a high mountain saddle.

Scenery includes plant life, subalpine meadows, wildflowers, an old cabin, and mountain views. Note that traffic is heavy to Barclay Lake, but low to Eagle Lake."

Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"This is actually two hikes. The first hike, to Barclay Lake, is an easy trail, suitable for young children. It has the added bonus of a lake with a shallow shoreline, large campsites, a designated day-use area, pit toilet, and the possibility of catching fish. The hike to Eagle Lake begins from Barclay Lake and gains nearly 1,500 feet in elevation on a trail that goes straight up. It is recommended only for hikers with experience in route-finding. Even in late spring the upper reaches of the trail in the vicinity of Stone and Eagle Lakes are snow-covered, and a 500-foot ascent through talus may be required." Read more

Nice combination of river; and meadow hike for kids. The double washed out crossing is a little dicey with a kid on my back and 5 year olds in toe but with a minimum of two adults or a safety line it's doable.
